Main Take-Aways

  • We may be inclined to over-justify our boundaries
  • Abusers are notoriously bad at respecting boundaries
  • Setting and maintaining boundaries is a skill set you can learn
  • Happy healthy people typically accept boundaries
  • While targetted by an abuser your boundaries are constantly under attack, so perhaps you are exhausted from defending your boundaries (rather than bad at it)

While I may technically be the Director here at SwanWaters, my unofficial title is Healing Cheerleader! I’m a survivor of childhood emotional abuse and workplace bullying. And believe me when I say that I’ve walked the walk when it comes to healing from trauma. I firmly believe that we can undo some of the damage that abuse has done to us, and learn the necessary skills to handle life and all it brings us.
